The church of San Alberte deserves this small recognition because of many different reasons, all of them with the same flavor to the Camino de Santiago.
El agua discurre por todo el entorno. Desde el cauce del río Parga hasta los arroyos que fluyen por sitios imposibles del trazado del propio Camino. Y como no, el silencio que se respira. Te obliga a pararte, sentarte en uno de sus bancos de piedra, y disfrutar de uno de esos momentos únicos que te ofrece el Camino del Norte.
San Alberte is a milestone of The Camino. The visit of this place by the pilgrims is a must because of its history and art.
The environment where it is placed: simply spectacular, as soon as you can foresee the existence of the church, a thick forest of ferns, oaks and chestnuts hide it until practically you bump into its stony wall.
The water flows through the whole environment. From the Parga river up to the brooks that flow through impossible places of The Camino outline. And the silence that is breathed. It obliges you to stopping, sitting on one of its stony benches and enjoying one of those unique moments that The Camino del Norte offers you.
